  • Cursing Doggcrapp's name

    That's what I was doing about half an hour ago when I finished my biceps and leg workout at the gym. I was rolling right along until I got to the squat rack for my ATG breathing squats. After squatting and breathing for some 3-4 minutes with the bar digging into my traps, I somehow managed to rack the bar although I don't remember doing it, then I kinda sunk to the floor and gasped for air for the next 5 minutes or so. My buddy saw me and complemented me on my depth and another guy had a worried look on his face and asked why I wasn't using a belt. I was unable to respond to either of them with any coherent words, but my strings of grunts got my point across. Then the nausea set in and the cursing of Doggcrapp's name began. I stumbled over to the lockers where I spent the next 5 minutes huddled over the toilet thinking for sure I was gonna hurl. I never did, so I packed up and came home. I just spent the past 10 minutes huddled over my toilet again preparing for the worst, but I was able to keep it down. The whole time I was saying "Screw this! I don't want to feel this way after a workout!" Now that the nausea has subsided, I STILL have an amazing pump going in my quads, hams and calves, and I'm looking forward to besting today's efforts on my next squat workout. Best leg workout I've had in all my years of training! Thanks, DC... ya bastard!

      jotun, Glad to see you here on this board, and that you are having fun with DC's program.

      Yes I have had many a bloody nose, seeing stars, puke in my throat, completely out of breath for 15 minutes and sometimes not even able to understand where I am or who I am.

      Welcome to the world of DC Training, good luck, kick that log books ass and bring a barf bag...

        Thanks, In-Human. I get tired of debating with teenagers at bb.com sometimes, so it's nice to find a board where people actually have some experience and numbers to back up their advice. I'm no stranger to DC training, but I just recently started it up again seriously and forgot how much ass it kicks. (My ass, that is) Gotta love it though!

          jotun, Sometimes we get a little out of hand here and act like we belong on bb.com, but it is just we need an outlet since as you know this program is very tough and the diet is just a killer to some, so even though we get stupid at times we all mean good and we love each other very much...

            Do you remember Trevor's "Beyond Failure Training"?

            I had to have a head CT after my first Leg workout. That's when I was diagnosed with high BP. I can sympathize with you Bro.

              You ain't training hard enough if you don't feel like blowing chunks after squatting.... ATG or go home.
              Train like a freak, every time.

                That worst feeling is the first 60 seconds after the high repper set where your thinking--ok am i going to get enough oxygen in my lungs to live here? I used to have no problem in my old gym--i could walk outside and the wind would help me get my breathing under control--but my new gym is on the second floor and the windows are closed with air conditioning on---I try to plant myself under the duct to try to somehow keep from collapsing

                    Ass-to-grass squats done in the traditional 20-rep style. Legs are quite sore today, as expected!
                    Funny thing is, people in my gym always get concerned when they see me squatting so low. Nobody there even goes to parallel, let alone below parallel.

                      At the gym I do legs at, they have sliding doors to the outside right behind the Smythe machine, it's great.

                        I don't know about you guys but I must have my mind so clear when I am getting ready for my workset, I think I breath just as hard as before I start the workset then when I am done, except for the Squat sets, that is a whole nother story, the last time I did my sets of Squats 8 then 4 then that 20, I was on the floor almost passing out, as I awoke I thought I saw Raul standing above me, then I realized it was just some real tan guy asking if I needed to have an ambulance or the coroner called.

                        The owner finally took the fire alarm button off the back door cause I would have to open it t 2 to 3 times a workout just to catch my breath, if the big overhead door was not open...
